2 Apple Watch Charging Stands for Travel Compared

For some users, the elegance and convenience of an Apple Watch charging stand is essential. And soon, these stands will be even more useful when watchOS 2.0 introduces the "Wake me up" feature. John Martellaro looks at two such charging stands that are especially useful for travel.

Apple launches new webpage to detail how it tests...

Yesterday we revealed that Apple was revamping the third-party accessory selection in its retail locations with new boxes designed by Apple itself. Apple has recently launched a new webpage that showcases the testing that all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch cases are required to go through before they are sold in an Apple Store.

Apple first notes that it analyzes the design of the case to ensure that all ports and buttons are still easily accessible and that the case design is strong enough for day-to-day use. Apple then tests to make sure the case does not interfere with the camera on the iPhone in any way.

Next, Apple says that acoustics are tested for each and...

Ada Lovelace has the honor of being the first computer programmer thanks to her work on Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine-the first programmable computer. Now she has the opportunity to come back to life, in a manner of speaking, as a LEGO Ideas project. The proposed kit includes Ada and Charles minifigs, the Analytical Engine, punch cards, plus a pet owl. The Analytical Engine opens and has space to hold a Raspberry Pi, so you can turn it into an actual computer, too. Like all LEGO Ideas kits that get produced, this one needs to hit 10,000 votes before it can be considered. Bonus: It's another cool way to recognize women in science.

CBS’s channel Showtime is now available on Apple TV. The company this morning began rolled out its version of the service that does not require a cable subscription. Instead, users simply pay $11 per month for the service, after a 30-day free trial.

In addition to coming to Apple TV, a new Showtime app that does not require a cable login is also hitting the iOS App Store. The app is not live yet, although it should rollout soon. The same $11/mo charge applies to it, as well. HBO’s standalone service costs $14.99, for comparison’s sake.

Apple Music diary one week in: A massive missed...

I gave my first impressions of Apple Music on day two, and my main disappointment remains: despite putting both owned and streamed music into a single app, there is absolutely no real integration between the two. All the evidence suggests that Apple Music has no awareness of my owned music.

I’ll get past that in a moment, but bear with me first for a couple of paragraphs. Because this is, in my view, more than just a missed opportunity: it’s almost criminally negligent. iTunes knows more about my musical tastes than my girlfriend. More than my neighbours, who have sometimes been more familiar with my musical tastes than they might wish. More than any of my...

It’s easy to look at a photograph of Elago’s new W Stand ($30) without fully appreciating how large it is. There aren’t many Apple Watch stands that dwarf the device they’re holding — Griffin’s plastic WatchStand is a notable exception — but when you take the 6-inch-tall, 2.4-inch-diameter W Stand out of its package, you quickly get the sense that it’s designed to feel big and solid. Yet it’s also affordable, selling for the same price as WatchStand and $10 less than ...

Apple CEO Tim Cook joins Duke University Board of...

Apple CEO Tim Cook, an MBA graduate and devoted booster of Duke University, has been appointed to the school’s Board of Trustees for a six-year term. Cook and seven other people joined the Board on July 1, bringing it to a total of 37 members — a size that suggests Cook will not be unduly distracted from his work at Apple.

The Board is the University’s governing body, responsible for its “educational mission and fiscal policies.” Fellow new Board members include NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, Coca-Cola Foundation Chairwoman and VP of Coca-Cola Global Community Affairs Lisa Borders, and two experts on financial services.

Cook has appeared at Duke a number of times during his years at Apple, notably offering leadership tips (above) during a 2013 interview at the Fuqua School of Business, his alma mater. He attended the 2015 NCAA basketball championship game back in April, wearing a blue sweater in the Duke Blue...

With the release of iOS 8.4 and the introduction of Apple Music, our iPhones and iPads can't use Home Sharing to play music. Apple senior vice president of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue says that feature could return in iOS 9, although he isn't saying why it was removed.

The Mac Observer Spin: Music streaming for iOS devices through Home Sharing may come back in a few months, so that's good news. And it sure looks like Twitter is the go-to place for talking with Apple executives.

Bryan Jones has taken close up images of the Apple Watch screen, magnified such it is possible to discern the individual pixels and sub-pixels. The images show the arrangements of red, green and blue light that make up the images users see on the Apple Watch Retina Display.

Jones compares the screen technology with that of iPhone screens (shown below). They look quite different likely due to the fact that Apple Watch uses an AMOLED display rather than a LCD. iPhone pixels are tightly packed together with the red, green and blue aligned vertically. With the Apple Watch, the blue sub-pixels act as spacers for the stacked red and green sub-pixels. Jones also notes that the...

Amazon Cloud Drive is the company's Dropbox competitor-Amazon Prime subscribers get unlimited photo storage and 5GB for videos and other files. The company also offers a $59.99 version of the service that gives you unlimited storage for everything.

You can use it to view your files and folders, preview documents, play videos and music stored on your Cloud Drive, and share your files as links and attachments.

Today, Apple Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services noted on Twitter that Apple is “working” to restore Home Sharing functionality in iOS 9. It is likely that Home Sharing was removed in iOS 8.4 due to changes necessary with the record labels to launch the new streaming music service. Cook previously revealed details on...

Meet Prince Harvey, a rapper from Brooklyn who recorded an entire album called PHATASS at the SoHo Apple Store-that stands for Prince Harvey at the Apple Store SoHo. The a capella recording was an effort born of necessity, as Prince Harvey had one laptop stolen and another failed. He was driven to record an album, and realized he could do a lot on the Macs at the Apple Store. With the help of two sympathetic employees who, he spent hours every day at the SoHo Apple Store for four months. He would save files to a thumb drive, email them to himself, or hide them in the trash, which as of this writing isn't emptied when the machines are reset every night. Brilliant move, Prince Harvey, brilliant! There's a couple of tunes on Soundcloud if you'd like to hear it yourself. There are additional details in The Daily Beast's story about the rapper.

Hacking Team hack reveals why you shouldn't...

An Italian firm with the appropriate name Hacking Team suffered a massive breach in its company data Sunday, and 400GB of internal documents so far have been released and are being analyzed by reporters and security researchers. Hacking Team’s customers are government agencies, including both law enforcement and national security, and the ostensibly legal software it sells to help them intercept communications includes not-yet-exploited vulnerabilities, known as zero-days.

Much has been speculated before and after Edward Snowden’s release of a trove of National Security Agency (NSA) documents in 2013 about the capabilities of the United States’ agencies as well as those of allies and enemies. The Hacking Team dump reveals quite a bit more about the routine functions of third-party suppliers into that ecosystem, including...

Unlike previous GoPro models, you won't need a case to protect it from getting wet. It's designed to withstand a soaking in up to 10 meters of water. However, while the camera is light in weight, it's also light on features -- and a heavy on price.

An Electric Car Won this Year’s Pikes Peak Hill Climb

There was a bit of line crossed this past week, as an electric car took the 2015 Pikes Peak Hill Climb. This is a race up Pikes Peak, where each competitor's time is compared to the others. By "rRace up Pikes Peak," Wikipedia says its 12.42 miles, with 156 turns, climbing 4,720 feet. And Rhys Millen did it in 9 minutes and 7 seconds (and change) in his eO PP03, a prototype electric vehicle. This is the first time an electric vehicle won the event, and while he set a new record for electric vehicles in the race, it's also the second fastest time behind the 8 minute and 13 seconds (and change) recorded in 2013 by Sebastien Loeb in a 2013 Peugeot 208 T16. Oh, and according to Mr. Millen, his car lost half its power before the halfway point in the race. And in case it need be pointed out, Apple is developing an electric car. This is the future. The video below shows the run, and it includes an interview with Rhys Millen at the end. Thanks to TMO member geoduck for the heads up on the...

Review: Apple Music offers great discovery &...

Apple Music was a service that I was incredibly excited about when Apple announced it last month at WWDC. I’ve written a lot about music here at 9to5Mac and every time I explain how big of a music fan I am. When I’m in my office, I always have music playing, whether it be radio or a specific artist or album. For the past two years, I’ve been using Spotify for all of my streaming music needs. I never had a problem with the service, especially recently as it has upped the quality of both its iOS and Mac apps to be both more stable and feature-rich. A combination that is hard to come by nowadays.

Being the Apple fanboy that I am, however, I obviously had to give Apple Music a try. For the past week, I’ve been using the service as my exclusive source for music. How does it...

It uses Bluetooth to send live readings to a free app when a linked iOS device is within 40 feet. The app also allows users to track multiple children with multiple patches, and take notes, among other features. The patch is designed for one-time use, which makes the $25 price tag hard to swallow.{/exp:char_limit}

NBA player blames injury on iPhone 6 Plus; We call...

Matt Bonner, a player for the San Antonio Spurs, says that his season-changing injury has been caused by -- are you ready for this? -- his iPhone 6 Plus. In an interview with the Concord Monitor, Bonner blamed the drop in his 3-point shooting, from 41.4 percent average over his 11-year career in the NBA to a still respectable 36.5 percent on an injury to his left (non-shooting) elbow. Bonner is "sure" that the injury was caused by the "way bigger" iPhone 6 Plus. 

Bonner says about his injury that "I think because I got that new phone it was a strain to use it, you have to stretch further to hit the buttons, and I honestly think that’s how I ended up developing it."

Wimp.

Ummm, Bonner is 6 feet, 10 inches tall. Like most NBA players (with the possible exception of my personal favorite player from the past, the 5 foot, 3 inch...

According to a post today from Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger, the update is rolling out to both Android and iOS. Other statements from the company suggest that the feature has been rolling out for about week and you should already be seeing these newer photos in-app.

A couple of weeks ago, I was waiting to do a CNBC slot on the Apple Watch in Asia -- the entire smartwatch class is having a lot of issues -- and I ran into Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, as he was coming out of the studio I was about to enter. For some reason, I thought he was going to be a typical entitled stuck-up jerk, like a lot of folks in his position are, but he wasn't. We started chatting about technology and jobs, and how he'd been focused as governor on getting tech companies to move to Texas from California.

What Apple Music Connect needs to succeed

Apple Music’s Connect is designed to foster connections between artists and fans, but there’s not much to love yet on either front. For listeners, Connect is pretty bare-bones and hasn’t offered much in the way of new content. Musician and iOS app designer Dave Wiskus says it’s not great for artists yet, either.

In a Friday blog post, Wiskus detailed his near-disastrous attempt at uploading a new song to share on Connect.

Embedding a song to share on the platform is riddled with difficulties, a far cry from the ease of uploading to SoundCloud. Artists have to make the clip they want to post available in My Music, which requires importing the track to iTunes (which can be its own special kind of hell). Posting the track can be glitchy—the form artists have to fill out wouldn’t allow...

The increase in size could be explained by rumors that Force Touch will be making its iPhone debut in the new model.

Thanks to Twitter, you can find every song that gets played on Beats 1

Here's a scenario you might find familiar. You're listening to Beats 1 when a great song comes on that you haven't heard before. You try to add it to your collection but it's not available. You search the iTunes Store but it's not there either. In the meantime, the song is over. What was it again? Drat, I forgot. Oh well. 

I was complaining about this on Twitter this morning when Kristoffer Tsinontas pointed me to the Twitter account Beats1 Plays. This unofficial account live-tweets every track that's being played on Beats 1. In the scenario above, I could simply hop on Twitter and see the very song I missed. 

Regarding those songs we can't add to our libraries, I'm not sure...

Let us know what you think of iOS 8.4/Apple Music

iOS 8.4 is out and with it, Apple has launched its new Apple Music subscription streaming service.

While nothing has apparently caught fire yet and cats and dogs have yet to begin interspecies dating as a result of the update and launch, we’d like to know what you think of it, for better or for worse.

So, as always, let us know what’s gone right, what needs improvement, what’s driving you nuts about the new operating system and the new Apple Music service and what’s on your mind.

And it isn’t that I MIND cats and dogs interspecies dating, it’s just awkward when they lower the lights and begin slow dancing across my living room floor…

Find your “Pluto Time”

NASA:

If you go outside at (a particular) time on a clear day, the world around you will be as bright as the surface of Pluto at noon.

It’s always Pluto Time somewhere, and NASA wants to see your view. New Horizons will become the first spacecraft to have a close encounter with Pluto. After the historic flyby on July 14, 2015, we’ll combine as many submitted images as we can into a mosaic image of Pluto and its moons.

Here in Chilliwack, BC, my “Pluto Time” is tonight at 9:20 PM PDT. I’ll definitely be outside taking a picture for NASA.

Leaked iPhone 6S schematic shows minimal exterior...

If nothing else, a leaked schematic should do the trick.

The cool cats at Engadget Japan have published what’s apparently a schematic of the upcoming iPhone 6S, which came from a source in the Chinese supply chain. The schematic shows a handset with only minimal changes from the current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

In truth, the changes to the handset’s thickness appear to be imperceptible, as the thickness marked on the schematic is 7.1mm – just 0.2mm thicker than the iPhone 6, and the exact same thickness as the iPhone Plus.

With these relatively unchanged numbers, it seems possible that your current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus case will fit the new model...

The real voice of Siri explains her work

Susan Bennett, the original voice of Siri, talks about voicing Siri and the fact that her real voice sounds so much different than what comes out of your phone:

“A Siri-like voice is still, at this point in time, very robotic,” she says. “The pitch is a little bit lower…it’s not as evenly paced as if you were speaking naturally.” She told me that few people recognize her on the street, since her speaking voice is different.

Watch the video. Absolutely love this.

After a second computer failure left him without a means to record his album and no money to buy a replacement, Prince finished recording the vocals and backing instrumental tracks for his new album entirely in that one Apple Store.

We’re not saying it didn’t happen, and that this is just an attempt by an unknown artist to create a cool-sounding story as a publicity stunt, but we do note that it’s...

The guts of the new model feature fewer chips and the ones that remain are notably smaller, hinting at Apple’s attempt…

Developer Nolan Lawson has penned a followup to his “Safari is the new IE” blog post, apologizing for some of it, but emphasizing his original points that Safari is not keeping up with Web standards, Apple is too secretive, and Apple acts like a monopoly by not allowing other rendering engines on iOS. But most of all, he’s frustrated with Apple’s lack of interaction with the Web developer community. Lawson links all of the recent meetups and conferences, which Apple has skipped, to the fact that the Web is fast becoming the world’s most advanced cross-platform application runtime.

Given the enormity of the financial meltdown in Greece, not being able to make iCloud or iTunes purchases is rather a long way down the list of the country’s problems – but for those with data stored on iCloud, not being able to renew a subscription could put that data at risk.

For those outside Europe who may not have seen too much news coverage, a combination of a long history of low levels of tax collection and the global financial crash has left Greece unable to pay its international debts. To prevent a collapse of the Greek banking system, the government has put strict controls in place, including maximum cash withdrawals of €60 ($66) a day – and a...

How Apple Music Can Disrupt Users' iTunes...

An anonymous reader writes: Early adopters of Apple Music are warning others they could get more than they bargained for if they intend to download tracks for offline listening. Since Apple Music is primarily a streaming service, this functionality necessitates turning on iCloud Music for syncing purposes. The way Apple syncs files is to scan your library for known music files, and if it finds one, the service gives your account access to Apple's canonical copy. Unfortunately, this wipes out any custom edits you made to the file's metadata. For those who have put a lot of time into customizing their library, this can do a lot of damage to their organizational system. Apple's efforts to simplify and streamline the process have once again left advanced users with a difficult decision to make.

Apple appears to be planning to enable its Apple Pay iPhone mobile payments service in the United Kingdom on July 14th, according to sources at multiple retailers. Apple has informed some Apple Retail employees in the U.K. that Apple Pay support will go live on that Tuesday, while an internal memos for supermarket Waitrose plus an additional retail partner indicate the same date:

Apple will also begin training its U.K staff on supporting Apple Pay on July 12th. Apple has begun enabling its mobile point of sale systems in England-based stores to take NFC payments and has been preparing materials to promote the Apple Pay launch in stores. It is plausible that different stores will have different launch dates, but the presence of the same, at least tentative, date makes July 14th a very possible widespread start date.

How-To: Go beyond OS X Photos + make amazing wall...

Apple knew it had something special to share with the world when it released iPhoto in 2002: in addition to printing 20″ by 30″ poster-sized photos, the original iPhoto’s “most stunning feature” (according to Apple) was a page layout tool that quickly turned digital photo collections into printed hardcover books. These were Apple’s acknowledgements that tangible photos still had value in a digital era, and it subsequently added calendars, greeting cards, softcover books, and letterpress cards to iPhoto. Apple’s newer app Photos for Mac hides these options under the File menu at the top of the screen, and hasn’t expanded on them, a shame considering how nice the results look.

But apart from including the poster options in 2002, Apple never added “large-format art” to the list of things its photo apps could produce. Back in 2002, digital cameras were so low-resolution that they struggled to...
